      Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll have a think about how we can add this.

        Please let us know particular films. We sometimes aren't alerted to changes at TMDb, but we can manually update if we know the IDs.

          Could you please provide more explanation as to how you’d like to compare your seen films. You can already sort them by rating (yours or the community’s).

              Note that a lot of these lists already exist on the site, added and updated by our members.

                  We agree with that point, but there’s also no need to pull in your entire history right from the outset. You can begin using Letterboxd, get comfortable with it, then upgrade and import later to complete your account if you wish. We figure if you like us enough to want to import, that’s worth the small fee to be Pro.

                    It looks like something is blocking our CSS files. This may be happening at your provider, or due to a content blocking plugin in your browser. Please eliminate any content blockers and retry.

                    It’s served from the domain ltrbxd.com — perhaps check with your provider whether this is getting blocked for any reason?

                      Let’s do this: can someone in this thread compile a list of “important/historically significant” adult films that should be on LB. Then we can see about adding an exceptions list to our importer that uses this list.

                      Matthew BuchananAdminMatthew Buchanan (Admin, Letterboxd) commented  · 

                      @Nick Sorry, it’s been reclassified as Adult by another TMDb moderator, so got removed again. We don't have the resources to look into it further, I’d suggest approaching someone in their forums if it’s definitely miscategorized.

                      @Nick Fixed. http://boxd.it/Ce

                      Progress on this may take some time, we have some other priorities to hit first.

                      I’m happy to collate them from comments here, or for you to link to a Google doc or similar where you can collaborate. Please ping me via these comments when you’ve got an initial list together…

                      Cult films with adult elements should not be marked as Adult on TMDb, as far as we aware. This flag is meant for straight pornographic material.

                      It’s possible we can override the Adult flag in certain cases where films are of historical significance but where TMDb insists they are Adult. I do not have a timeframe for this work, however.

                        @Andy Kemp We rely on TMDb.org for all our credits, including cinematographers. If they’ve been added by the users of that site (or you!) then you can switch to the Crew tab on one of their films and click to see everything else they’ve worked on. We know this data isn't complete, but every little bit helps!

                        Yes, we plan to add some sorting options to the actor/director/studio pages, which could include user rating.

                          We’ll consider multiple filters at once. You can click the “More Services” link on a film’s page to open a panel that lists all the services the film is on according to GoWatchIt.com.

                          Matthew BuchananAdminMatthew Buchanan (Admin, Letterboxd) commented  · 

                          @Elliott There should be a panel below the film poster. If there isn't it’s probably because you’re running a content or ad blocker. This is what it looks like:

                          https://cl.ly/hNAG

                          The "More Services" link is at the bottom of the panel.

                            @Brian Note that you can remove tags, but you need to do it by editing each review that they're included on individually.

                                    Ben, is this a request for the app? The web already supports this option.

                                      Kevin, this is certainly not expected behavior!

                                      Could you please send us your username, and a couple of examples of films you interacted with that were not saved, so that we can check what happened? Thank you.

                                      One thought occurs, and it’s a usability issue we’ll need to address: if you click the ★ icon to rate the film, which opens the rating control, and you select a rating for a film, it’s possible to then swipe to the next film without "saving" that rating using the checkmark icon. For now, you need to tap the checkmark icon to save the rating on each film.

                                      We have a plan to improve this so that rating control is always live.

                                      This page here lists your activity for Dawn of the Dead (2004) and is showing no activity: http://letterboxd.com/kevinbro/film/dawn-of-the-dead-2004/activity/

                                      So this means that there was likely an issue with the ratings being stored from the carousel view, we’ll see if we can recreate that here. Thanks again for reporting.

                                      Kevin, you can restart that process from the "Search" tab. There are options to drill into popular and highest-rated films there (and others), and once you get to the film list, there’s a carousel icon to enter the full-screen view.

                                      We’ll take a look and see if we can figure out why those previous ratings didn't take.

                                        We’ve solved it. "Coming soon."

                                            We’re thinking more about this now that our API is nearing.

                                            In the meantime, note that you can block any member from following you or posting comments on your content (look for the Flag icon on the member’s page).

                                            It is still planned, but not at the top of the priority list yet. The best solution is not to put any identifying info or links on your profile, and choose a username that likewise doesn't identify you.

                                            We don't have a timeframe for this at present. Once we ship our app and API, it’ll be nearer the top of the todo list.
